“Surprisingly Enjoyable Time”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We were told that everything was in Japanese, but we opted to give it a try anyway. The exhibits were well done and quite interactive. We did have some trouble with the model train displays and it was a bit disappointing that we could not make the Shinkansen work, which apparently any kid 4 or over could operate. All in all it was a very enjoyable time.

“Kids love it!”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

If your kids love trains, they will definitely love this place, and enjoy all the interactive activities inside the museum. There are clear signs inside the Bentencho Station so that you will find the museum easily. The whole visit with a young kid who is interested in trains is about 2 hours. The fee is 400 JPY for an adult and 100 JPY for young kid, which I think is a very fair price.

“A Fascinating museum with lots of Trains.”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

The Modern Transportation Museum is located adjacent to the Bentencho station on the JR Osaka loop line . The Osaka municipal railway station is also located closeby. The museum has a great collection of Japanese trains both full size and in scale. The museum has rooms that showcase different technolgy, transport and eras. The outdoor plaza with the real locomotives and trains is especially good.The museum has appeal to all but would please those who like technology, especially trains. Recommended for sure.

“Nice Museum to spend an hour or two”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

These places bring out my inner geek. I was travelling on my own but noticed that the children who attended seemed to really enjoy the place. Older teenagers may find it a bit boring.

I enjoyed the effort that have gone into some of the displays.

Highly recommended.

“Good experience”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

It is a very good place to learn about the development of trains in Japan. Very good display of the trains. The model trains are captivating. Must see for kids.
